In the engineering and manufacturing sectors, a reputation for excellence and precision is vital. At Rotaflow we have spent four decades refining our design, testing and engineering processes to ensure everything we produce is of the highest standards. As a business, our reputation is only as good as the products we manufacture, so everything has to reach our high standards before it is shipped.
Thanks to this attention to detail and maintenance of standards, lots of businesses repeatedly use our products.
Hiretech are one such company. We have worked with Hiretech for the last five years, providing them with scores of swivel joints for a number of different purposes. Their work is largely in the subsea oil and gas industries, where product reliability is absolutely imperative.
Hiretech have a vast equipment portfolio that needs to be high specification and ready to work at a moments notice, in the most challenging of environments. It’s for this reason they need to work with an engineering partner they can trust. Their technology breaking at the wrong time can be devastating to production and safety.
Rotaflow have suppled Hiretech with various swivels to be used in the oil and gas industry. They are used for supplying power to and controlling subsea equipment and tooling such as recovery grabs or heavy duty decommissioning pipe shears. All of the multipassage swivel joints supplied to Hiretech are used on umbilical hose reels, an area in which we have particular expertise.
The specification will depend on the size and quantity of fluid flow through each swivel. These factors will also impact the material of construction and paint finish, because Hiretech will be placing Rotaflow swivels in a wide variety of environments and conditions, each with their own impact on metals and paint finishes. The swivels have to be built to withstand high pressure as well as extreme weather conditions.
They advise the fluid and we will then discuss the material options and costs. Upon order placement our design team sends an assembly drawing for approval, which is an opportunity to request changes to assist with mounting/installing etc. This relationship has developed over time to allow us to be more streamlined, simply because we know what their preferences are.
Whenever Hiretech are looking to upgrade, replace or expand some equipment that requires a reliable high end bespoke swivel joint to be designed, tested and manufactured they repeatedly turn to Rotaflow. They use a variety of swivels from of our range, from off-the-shelf through to customised designs. Some of these are simply replacement parts, whereas others are brand new orders.
By forming partnerships like this, we at Rotaflow are able to send our products across the globe, further enhancing our reputation as a world leader in swivel joint design and manufacture.
